Jumping into bed at the end of a long day should be an enjoyable experience – after all, you’ve earnt it. However for allergy sufferers, bed can be the source of constant irritation in the form of sneezing, wheezing or itching.

Having an allergic reaction while sleeping, or being in bed, are very common within the Australian population. Over 30% of Australian’s complain of hay fever (allergic rhinitis) symptoms on a regular basis, with dust mites, mould or pet hair often being common triggers. Once hay fever sufferers experience these triggers, it’s often sneezing, runny noses, watering eyes or at its most extreme, asthma, that begins to impact people in bed.
That’s why it is crucial to ensure you have the best asthma bedding available to for reducing exposure to allergies while you sleep. Try to purchase tightly woven fabric bedding, with pore size of less than 10 microns – which means that allergens can’t make their way through the bedding and impact your sleep. Linen is something that should be avoided, but silk can be an excellent option due to the tight weaving and breathability that it affords.
